Poway National got bitch-slapped by Poway American last night, 12-2. I hate to see a bunch of kids lose because of a parent that doesn't know what the fuck he's doing. First, they pump up this game as being obnoxiously important--bad enough that it's single elimination, but it's against the crosstown rival team that's beaten their team each of the last several years in the same situation. Ooooooooh. No, sorry, it's just another game, especially when the rosters of both teams change completely each year.

Next, when a kid gives up five runs in the first inning, you pat him on the back, tell him it's just not his day and he'll get 'em next week, then bring in relief. You don't send him back out for another inning and a third to give up seven more runs. That's just fucking cruel, man... I suppose I shouldn't be surprised anymore by what kinds of unqualified people get picked to coach all-star teams.

The last issue of Hunter: The Age of Magic came out yesterday. Horrocks did a nice job of wrapping up the storyline. It comes full-circle with the original Gaiman mini-series. I'll leave it at that for now.

The electrical system in the car is acting up. I suspect the alternator's going bad... there go my plans for going shooting tomorrow morning.
